JLD's Community Impact


In 2018, JLD pioneered the DeKalb Saturday Scholar Initiative to provide extra support with reading and language skills to 3rd-5th graders at Oak View Elementary.


JLD members assist multiple DeKalb County organizations such as the International Women's House, DeKalb Library Foundation, the Women's Resource Center, Clarkston Community Center, and more.


JLD mentors middle school girls at the Jones Club in Decatur.


JLD collaborates with the other 12 Georgia Junior Leagues to advocate for women and children in Georgia.

Are you interested in working with elementary school students to improve their early reading and language skills?  Or mentoring middle school girls?  What about helping with voter education and registration?  Or advocating for women and children?  If so, we have volunteer opportunities for you!
